Hello! I am Denisa Oosthuizen, a freelance writer and editor based in South Africa.

I write about psychology, health, and lifestyle topics, e.g. wellness and well-being, minimalism, holistic and intentional living.

Books are a massive part of my life. You can browse my Instagram feed to see my #bookstagram profile and current reads. I also publish selective book reviews.

I write fiction under the pen name Irene Eccleston. My goal is to become a successful published novelist. You can view and purchase my children’s book series ‘Snowflake the Cat’ from Amazon.

I live in Pretoria, South Africa, with my husband Rick, cat Snowflake (the main character of my children’s book series), and two dogs, Sokkies and JoJo.

About my writing career:

Since 2007 I have had many roles during my writing career as an online journalist, managing editor, digital publisher, and content marketing specialist. I produced content successfully for a variety of publications, clients, and industries.
